Lively Action encapsulates the spirit at the core of all our work – which is that the plays should be explored actively.

Every day, hundreds of students take part in our Lively Action workshops and lectures, which include an exploratory tour of the theatre. We offer a range of workshops for every key stage and ability. We have extensive experience of working with groups with special educational needs, international groups and those with English as an additional language.

Lively Action takes its name from John Marston’s preface to The Malcontent in which he apologises "that Scenes invented, merely to be spoken, should be enforcively published to be read" and asks that the play "be pardoned, for the pleasure it once afforded you, when it was presented with the soul of lively action".

Thinking of booking a Lively Action workshop in February or March? Why not come and see our Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank show as well. Specially designed for young people and running at 90 minutes, our 2019 production is Romeo and Juliet. Tickets are free to state schools in London and Birmingham, and £5-15 for all other school groups. For further information, please visit:
